Finally, a test ride. No wet suit needed!

We finally had a day with out rain here in moss country. It's rained 28 out of the last 30 days. I did a 110 mile loop, headed out southeast from my house on pavement for about 20 miles of back country roads at 55 - 65 mph. After trying different heights for the wind screen I found I got the least amount of wind noise with the screen about 2" from maximum height. Really with the screen in almost any position except all the way up, the air felt clean and quiet. It definitely takes the bulk of the wind off the torso. I left the wind screen at that position on the fire roads and it worked great!
Once again I have to rave about the Lynx fairing. The installation was easy with clear written instructions. It fits like it could have come from the factory as is and I think it makes an already awesome looking bike look even better. And ..... it does what it's suppose to do.
